She Dances!!!

Last Tuesday, my first girl left to go to her new forever home.  She is doing great with her new kids and her new family is happy to have her.   It's been quiet here for 9 days...until Thursday morning.  This  girl came to stay with me for awhile and she is lovely.

It's not a perfect picture, but I still think it is pretty cool!  I took this from a distance with zoom.  Sometimes less than perfect pictures are interesting too.....

Interesting position she is in.  Her family is off for a lovely holiday.  They gave me a detailed letter about her when they brought her to me yesterday.   One of the things they mentioned was that she often does a happy dance at feeding time.  So, last night, I watched her carefully as SHE  watched me carefully preparing her meal.  Nothing happened other than she watched my every move.

Isn't she gorgeous? Such a pretty, shiny coat.   She is so different from the first girl in many ways.  I've never seen a pup relax in that position though. 

This is her this afternoon.  I took several pictures and she didn't move.  She is very calm.

I think she might be a little shy too.  She doesn't pose for the camera or move with the flash like the first girl did.  Anyway,  last night was our first night and it was chilly.  I fell asleep on the couch cuddled under my favourite pips quilt while watching tv.  I woke up around 3 something and let the girl outside too  while I was awake.  I was cold then and went back to sleep.

Kinda like this, but I was back under my  quilt :)   Around 6:30,  I woke up to some gentle nudges to the back of my head.  This was a bit disconcerting as I am normally the only one here besides the geckos and ants.  I remember groaning a bit and pulling the quilt up more, but the nudges continued.
They were gentle nudges, but insistent. When I didn't respond right away, the nudges moved from the back of my head to my face.  OK then. Time to wake up.....
As I became coherent and started to get up, I saw her.  She was doing "THE DANCE".  She launched herself and did a complete spin mid air. She did it several times until I was on my feet. 
 How can a dog do that? Launch, complete spin, repeat.  
Lucky me, I woke up smiling this morning.  It was so cool to watch her be so  happy to wake me up.
I think she is going to be fun to have around.  It's all good.

  1. what a lovely story and a lovely dog.xx

    1. she is a different from the first girl but I am enjoying her just as much! xx debbie

  2. She sounds lovely - and how lucky for the family to be able to leave her somewhere special.

    1. Her family was SO nervous parents leaving the newborn with the babysitter for the first time. They even brought TWO "diaper" bags packed with her stuff...*smiling* I do appreciate they gave me a detailed letter about her because she really is so different from the first girl. I hope they will be able to relax and enjoy their time away though. I am feeling lucky to have her. here with me. xx debbie

    1. She is much more mellow than the first girl was with you LOL. I guess my days of waking up on my own are over for now...I woke up to head nudges and the happy dance again this morning :) xx debbie

  4. So lovely to have these dogs come and stay...

    1. Fiona, I am enjoying every single moment. I am so happy to have found a way to have a pet that I couldn't have otherwise. I am the lucky one. xx debbie

  5. So glad you have another little friend for a while. She is gorgeous. Hugs.....

  6. Noela, this one is a character...she is sweet and loving but she is also very bossy with me. She can tell time and she has selective hearing when she is in the backyard. I am still smiling though. xx debbie
